When it comes to making a success of any web business, one of the best sources of advice has to be online forum’s. Forum’s are usually frequented and indeed run, by Internet marketing experts. The problem with many forum’s is that whilst they are superb, access is restricted to members of a particular website and therefore you have to pay a monthly fee.
This is not always the case and there is a superb forum which is completely free to use and is run by and used by some top Internet marketers. Take some time to browse through the posts, you will be amazed at the tips that you pick up. If you have a specific question about marketing online, post it – someone will take the time to answer you. Please note, this forum is not run by me – the web address below is merely a redirect from my site.
NEW PRODUCTS COMING SOON!
I have been working on several new info-products recently and two of them are very close to being released – hopefully within the next 2 – 4 weeks. News of their release will be made in this newsletter first and all subscribers and customers will be entitled to a special deal ONLY available via this newsletter. Watch this space…
I just wanted to say a big ‘Thank-you’ to everyone that read my announcement two weeks ago regarding my eBooks being available from Amazon and then surfed off and purchased one of them.
During the 24 hour period after my newsletter went out, the UK wholesale guide was one of the top ten best-selling eBooks on Amazon.co.uk and at one point was the 5th best-selling eBook on the site! The US wholesale guide made it well into the top 100 best-selling eBooks on Amazon.com – which considering the much higher level of competition on the .com site was great.
To be honest, I wasn’t expecting to make many (if any) sales as a result of the announcement, it was merely just a little achievement that I wanted to share. So thank’s to everyone for turning a small achievement into an even bigger one!
THE ONLINE TRADER HITS 5,000!
This week, the number of subscribers to ‘The Online Trader’ passed the 5,000 mark. Again, thank-you very much for sticking around and reading my newsletter. It only seems like yesterday that I was desperately trying to get to 100 subscribers, so this is a great milestone to reach. I still have a way to go though – I found out this week that Corey Rudl (a top net marketer) has a mailing list of over 360,000 subscribers and can make over $40,000 a month just from links included in his newsletter! I am currently spending some time studying Corey’s techniques and will be writing more about him in future issues.
eBAY XMAS RUSH
Christmas is the busiest time of the year for online auctions such as eBay and if you are thinking about starting to sell online, there is no better time to do so. I recommend small, gadget type items that sell for £10 ($15) or less. These are great impulse purchases and ideal stocking-fillers for many buyers. Choose a product (or two), run a Dutch Auction for multiple items and watch the bids add up. Remember, you don’t need to make a huge profit on each item, even a small profit soon adds up if you sell 50 or 100 items and this is perfectly achievable. By the way, if you are an eBay fan, one of my new products mentioned above has an eBay theme (but don’t worry, it is not another ‘How to use eBay’ guide!).
Until next time…
